I hit 3 out of my first 6 on a standard silhouette target with my .270. I was really thrilled. I now know the drop for the rounds I"m shooting and next time I see a deer at 400 or 500 yards, I know the holdover and can snipe them from the next county!!!!!
I havent begun LONGGGGG RANGE shooting yet even though I been around weapons for over a decade. Im glad to hear things are going right. I find it funny with the word "sniping" especially sniping deer
. I do plenty of sniping though
